The Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA), or Association Canadienne des Travaux Publics, was founded in 1986. Since that time, CPWA has become “the voice of public works in Canada.”

The CPWA Board of Directors is an eight-member Board whose members are chosen by the eight CPWA Chapters throughout Canada. The focus of this Board of Directors is advocacy and outreach for public works. The CPWA Board of Directors meet monthly to identify policy and other issues and work to build relationships with other stakeholder associations and with government agencies and Parliament. CPWA is often asked to provide input to Government on issues and policy related to infrastructure funding, program implementation and policy, such as with the New Building Canada program.

CPWA has a history of involvement in national initiatives, such as the National Round Table on Sustainable Infrastructure (NRTSI), National Asset Management Working Group, the Municipal Infrastructure Forum, and most recently was one of the four founding organizations which produced the first Canadian Report Card for Infrastructure.

There are more than 2,200 members of CPWA in Canada. These public works professionals area also members of the American Public Works Association (APWA), resulting in a combined membership of over 28,500 in North America. Members of CPWA and APWA plan, design, build, operate, and maintain the transportation, water supply, storm drainage, sewage and refuse disposal systems, as well as public buildings, and other structures and facilities essential to Canada's economy and quality of life.
